17/18 September Rankings: 101-125

101) Dennis Smith Jr. (PG) – Smith was dynamite in summer league and should be a serious contender for the rookie of the year award. He doesn’t have the long-term upside that Markelle Fultz and Lonzo Ball do, but he could be better as a rookie. He’s going to have a fairly large role for Mavericks. …

Buy Low/Sell High Targets and a Preview of Week 5

The hallmark of a poor fantasy owner is impatience. Too often managers overreact to slow starts and sell underachieving players low. Don’t be one of those managers. In fact, do the opposite.

16/17 Punting Guides Part 4: Punt Blocks

Blocks are very difficult to find as they tend to be concentrated among just a handful of players.

September Rankings: 26-50

26) Kristaps Porzingis (PF/C) – Karl-Anthony Towns was 2015-2016’s most hyped rookie, but Porzingis wasn’t far behind and deservedly so. The Knick is a dream fit for the punt FG% build due to his elite blocks (1.9 BPG) and solid rebounding (7.3 RPG) and fits well into almost any build thanks to his big man …

Free-Agent Roundup – Southwest Division

Dallas Mavericks Notable Additions: Seth Curry, Harrison Barnes, Andrew Bogut The Mavericks took advantage of the Warriors’ role player fire sale, scooping up Bogut for cheap and Barnes for not so cheap. Usually, I get excited when a role player is stepping into a much larger role, but that’s not the case with Barnes. In …

October Rankings Update

The regular season is just over a week away and most players’ outlooks are much clearer than they were a month ago. After following training camp and watching far too much preseason, I have made numerous adjustments to my rankings. Most changes were minor, but I did make about a dozen major changes that I …
